Default Re: Debating a Power Chair.. WWYD

Sip and puffs work really well and only cost a few hundred to add on. I know they aren't completely long term for PALS because of the breathing thing, but they are better than not till then.

A high level quad (just below vent dependent) sailed entirely around England solo in a power boat controlled purely by sip and puffs.
